Following the CELL Endura from earlier this year, PUMA and RHUDE have reunited for a far more expansive collaborative range. Encompassing four distinctive footwear models and a variety of clothing, the Fall/Winter 2019 collection is packed with distinctive revisions of PUMA’s signature silhouettes.

Kicking things off, the tall Basket ‘68 OG has been upgraded with touches of white leather, grey suede and metallic silver accents, bolstered by textural laces and punched-out RHUDE branding on the medial side. The CELL Alien offers another co-branded tongue tag, but opts for a more muted black mesh and leather, finished with “Green Menthol” CELL technology in ankle and a light beige midsole.

Like the Basket ‘68 OG, PUMA’s Alteration now sports touches of grey and silver atop a vintage-hued midsole, with the suede, leather and neoprene upper partially obscured by a removable heel-encircling suede overlay. Finally, the Palace Guard features similar grey touches, with its suede, leather and nylon upper upgraded with intentionally-haphazard stitching for a raw, unfinished feel. The four distinct silhouettes will be accompanied by several unisex clothing items, including coats, hoodies and track suits, designed to naturally complement the footwear offering.

“Having immigrated to the United States before going to high-school, I learned about the power of brand recognition in a different way than most American designers,” said RHUDE founder and design director Rhuigi Villaseñor in a statement. “The power of a logo can hold such weight and serve armor in its own way, the idea that I have the access to re-imagine that concept with my own brand in partnership with PUMA is a dream come true its own right.” PUMA’s Global Senior Head of Partnerships, Yassine Saidi, added: “Rhuigi is the most exciting designer right now, setting a new narrative in the fashion and street space.”

RHUDE and PUMA’s latest collaborative effort hits PUMA’s website, stores and select retailers on August 3. Take a closer look at the four elevated kicks below.

In the meantime, fans are still waiting for RHUDE’s collaborative Vans to receive a release date.
